I play it by myself daily, more for brain training than anything else.
I am pretty decent at it , but need a real opponent. When this place was. busy, there were often 6 or 7 players.
It is probably the only place on Newsfix that cannot descend into acrimony.
Set it as a favourite, on your laptop, pc , tablet or phone and play away..Just scored 10/10 general knowlege in 75 seconds.

I did it on my phone, which I have to zoom for each question..
But I'm surprised a few more aren't up for it.

I've been the sole player this year. Felt like being Robinson Crusoe. One game I forgot submit the answer until the morning. My time was 8hours and I STILL won. I KNEW I would win every game so there was no hurry.

It's the public who contribute questions to the quiz site - and in the showbiz genres I sometimes strongly suspect it's the artistes themselves or their agents offering those questions and getting free publicity for their songs & films, some of it pretty obscure. Crafty bleeders!! Mad

Please join Jules, it's fun and not really that competitive. No prizes for winning,m. It is timed, so you lose points the slower you are, which stops you Googling the answer.
Good brain training, but it's a bit US orientated .

Requires more brains than you can offer, your most common contribution on any thread is either "bullshit" or "+1""

Sometimes the quiz generously gives you a free extra point by asking a question where the answer is : "All the options are correct"  ..... You just tick that answer automatically without even bothering to read the other three options properly hahaha  The daily quiz.  3489511464  The daily quiz.  1366281442


The quiz provides so many humorous moments. The typos are a hoot too. lol!

So, I think I'll dip my toes into the forum quiz now. I've been waiting for the new month to start.


I might get rubbish scores to start with. But will improve gradually & steadily ………. & eventually become unstoppable!

Well that's the plan anyway. Razz Razz


(Hope a few others will join in??  It's just a bit of harmless fun innit? Beats rowing! I also hope Andy will return and participate, cos after all it's his idea. )

The quiz requires a communal PW which no current member can remember hence why it died a death. I consoled myself by joining another quiz at another site. So that's that.

Thanks OP, you tried and your enthusiasm was infectious. fiesta

Okay I don’t think I can fix it cos number one, nobody really likes me messing around in the dusty admin loft and number two, it will probably take me about seventeen hours to find the quiz and then I’d probably blow it up so...

Yeah I’ll let Ben know that he has something to fix.
